Travel Weekend: Beach Bumming at Magalawa Island

It is not yet summer time yet I already hit the beach! Such an early bird huh? :))) The odds were in our favor! Hohoho! Thank goodness, it did not rain when my tita and I went to Palauig, Zambales to visit one of the province's hidden beautiful and serene beach/island - Magalawa Island.

We were the only ones (I meant tourists) in the island. It was as if we were in a private island getaway. Ang sarap pala ng feeling pag solo mo yung isang napakalaking place (how I wish sobrang yaman ko para makabili ako ng sariling island o kahit bahay-baksyunan man lang na malayo sa gulo at ingay.)

Magalawa Island is a good place for beach bumming because only few people visit the place. It is not yet fully-developed and commercialized unlike Boracay. Though Magalawa's sand is white, it isn't as fine and white as Boracay's. But at least, you don't need to fly all the way to Aklan or other beaches in Visayas. Magalawa is just 4-5 hours drive away from Manila and 5-minute boat ride from Palauig drop-off point.

like a giddy kid enjoying the beach

The Magalawa duo.. I thought my Tita and I will get bored but it wasn't that boring after all. Sometimes you just need to try something new for experience.
